October 11th, another fascinating day with finds specialist Zoe Tomlinson and conservation expert Jo Gray.  We are developing our skills in analysing and recording all the ceramic building materials (CBM), tesserae and wall plaster that have emerged from the Dean’s garden.  There must be close to 1,000  tessera tiles; they all need individually recording and sorting.

A number of tegula fragments have been found, with a variety of flange and cut out types.  One possible fragment of antefix tile was identified, if correct a rare occurrence.  Zoe is developing research on the wall plaster.  We hope to compile a report on all this analysis as soon as possible, but like all post-excavation processes it is patient work!
